Crankworx Summer Series Canada is about to kick off at SilverStar Bike Park bringing together seasoned pros, pinned locals, top amateurs, up-and-coming youngsters all battling it out for their chance on the podium.

The list of registered athletes for these SilverStar events is already shaping up to be stiff competition between B.C.’s local heroes versus some of the biggest names in the sport. Notable pro riders who’ll be lining up at the start gates in SilverStar include:

Caroline Buchanan (AUS)
Harriet Burbidge-Smith (AUS)
Amy Ertel (CAN)
Robin Goomes (NZL)
Vaea Verbeeck (CAN)

Jackson Frew (AUS)
Bas Van Steenbergen (CAN)
Keegan Wright (AUS)
Jayden Fleming (NZL)

Big names and big tricks are also returning to this summer series stop for the Title Slopestyle, a Gold level Freeride Mountain Bike (FMB) World Tour Slopestyle Event.

“We are so excited for this invite-only event. We’ve already had 13 of the 25 top Slopestyle riders in the world confirm they will be here competing at SilverStar.”

Chantelle Deacon, Communications Manager, SilverStar

Back again to SilverStar this year is the Canadian Slopestyle pro, Griffin Paulson.

“I couldn’t be more excited to return to the Title Slopestyle this year. Everyone was so stoked on the course last year and it’ll be awesome to see what everyone brings to the table at this classic Canadian slopestyle event! Last year the competition was late in the season and we experienced some cold conditions, so I’m hoping for some warmer and dryer riding this year! I think it will also be cool to see a decent number of new riders on course, definitely anticipating a great competition!”

Paulson isn’t the only top Slopestyle athlete we’ll see returning to take on Title Slopestyle again this year. Nicholi Rogatkin (USA) will be back, and he’s thrilled to have another shot taking on the challenging course designed and built by Vernon local and mountain biking legend, Brett Rheeder.

“Very hyped on the return of the Title Slopestyle at SilverStar. That course has so many possibilities for such big tricks. Last year with the weather and the conditions we had, it was a big struggle, but we still managed to have a pretty insane competition. I had a rough go at it last year but managed to put down a safe run for fifth place in the end, so I’m looking to do some bigger bangers on the course this year. Overall, I’m super stoked to have another contest at SilverStar, it should be rad.”
